God, I have a problem."
"What's the problem, Eve?"
"I know that you created me and provided this beautiful
garden and all of these wonderful animals, as well as that hilarious
comedic snake, but I'm just not happy."
"And why is that Eve?"
"I am lonely, and I'm sick to death of apples."
"Well, Eve, in that case, I have a solution. I shall create
a man for you."
"Man? What is that?" asked Eve.
"A flawed creature, with many bad traits. He'll lie, cheat
and be vain; all in all, he'll give you a hard time. But he'll be bigger,
faster and will like to hunt and kill things. I'll create him in such a way
that he will satisfy your physical needs. He will be witless and will
revel in childish things like fighting and kicking a ball about. He won't
be as smart as you, so he will also need your advice to think properly."
"Sounds great," said Eve, with ironically raised eyebrows,
"but what's the catch?"
"Well,.....you can have him on one condition."
"And what's that, dear God? "
"As I said, he'll be proud, arrogant and self-admiring...so
you'll have to let him believe that I made him first. And it will have to
be our little secret...
you know, woman to woman."
